The day’s events started with a guided campus tour where students learned more about UC Berkeley’s student-body, campus demographics, as well as its history and interesting facts.
EOPS/CARE and CalWORKs students also had the opportunity to connect with former EOPS Skyline College students who are currently attending their senior year at Cal. During this engaging student panel, students spoke about the transfer process, shared personal experiences, and great insight in terms of what to expect once at Cal.
The event concluded with a buffet lunch at Crossroads, one of UC Berkeley’s dining commons.
The campus visit was a major success, which served to promote the goal of transferring to a four-year institution among EOPS/CARE and CalWORKs students.
